ASCENDENTI

ASCENDENTI IN ITALIAN MEANS TO FOLLOW A PATH THAT GOES UPWARDS, TO BECOME CONNECTED TO THE SKY, TO SEEK CONTACT WITH THE DIVINITY.

MANY OF THESE WORKS DEAL WITH THE CENTRAL THEME OF MY ARTISTIC RESEARCH: RELIGION, RITUALS, AND SPIRITUALITY.  THEY ARE STORIES OF CHANGE, STORIES OF CONSCIOUS TRANSITION, STORIES OF PHYSICAL OR MENTAL SHIFTS.  THESE STORIES TEND TO QUESTION A POSSIBLE EXISTENCE OF A MORE COMPLETE HUMAN BEING, WHO FINDS THEIR PLACE HARMONIOUSLY IN THE UNIVERSE.  A NEW BEING, WHO UNDERSTANDS THEMSELVES AS A SPIRITUAL BEING, AND LIVES TO TRANSFORM THEMSELVES WITHIN A MATERIAL BODY.

THE MYSTERY MANIFESTS ITSELF IN THE FORM OF A COLOURED, UNMENTIONABLE, INDECIPHERABLE NATURAL FORCE.
